"fed up and embarrassed, horrified, nauseated" were some of the many comments. we have a series of reports. we begin with nbc's luke russert on capitol hill to tell us where things go from here. >> reporter: good evening, lester. in a special weekend session both the house and senate made clear what plans they would not support to extend the nation's credit limit. as it stands, leaders are still trying to find a compromise to avert default. the house and senate continue trading shots as the clock ticks down to a possible default. >> it is long past time for the senate to pass something. their negligence threatens the fiscal health of this nation. >> what will they vote for? >> reporter: the republican-controlled house voted to reject a senate debt extension plan even before its version was offered. last night senate democrats voted down a plan from house speaker john boehner saying an addition of a balanced budget amendment to win over house conservatives went too far. >> tonight a bipartisan majority in the senate rejected boehner's short term plan. >> reporter: as members went to strategy sessions, leaders came forward in duelling news conferences saying they want to find a solution. >> we are now fully engaged, the speaker and i, with the one person in america out of 307 million people who can sign a bill into law. >> we can still change this. if my republican colleagues acting in good faith come to me with a proposal, that's what we will do. >> reporter: shortly after democratic leaders were called to the white house by president obama to discuss a way forward. the next few days, crucial to a resolution of a debt impasse. an early sunday morning procedural vote in the senate for the reid plan. a final vote would have to come before tuesday, the august 2nd debt deadline. this week has seen many angry constituents flooding congressional phone lines, demanding an answer to the debt crisis. today even members of congress got on the line to hear voters' concern. on a scorcher of a day in washington, visitors waiting to tour the capitol also weighed in. >> social security, we don't know what's going to happen with that. >> i think it's utterly ridiculous that our lawmakers can't come to come kind of consensus on what's best for the country. >> reporter: now lester it's crunch time. we can report the president has been in contact with republican leaders by phone. we mentioned that democratic leaders were recently just at the white house when senator harry reid returned to the capitol he was asked by reporters if the meeting led to them being closer to a compromise with republicans. he said the answer is no. lester? >> luke russert on the hill for us. we want to go now to the white house and check in with nbc's mike vicar with more on the president's push for a deal. good evening tao. >> reporter: good evening. after weeks of fits and starts, the two sides appeared this afternoon to be moving closer. but as we come on the air tonight, another angry dispute between the two leaders of the senate breaking out into the open on the senate floor. lester, the key to all this at this point is senate republicans. and indeed white house officials confirm that for the first time in days, so far as we know, the president spoke directly with mitch mcconnell, the republican leader in the senate. later he met here at the white house with harry reid and nancy pelosi, the democratic leaders of congress. of course, the first time they have met face-to-face in a week. lester, not really much separates the two sides. the bottom line for the white house, the debt ceiling be raised high enough, $2.5 trillion, to last until after next year's elections. for republicans, they simply want any debt ceiling rise to be matched dollar for dollar with spending cuts, and they don't want to raise any taxes. lester, one more thing. treasury officials concede they're looking at who gets paid and who does not in the event that deadline is missed but they're not ready to reveal any: detail yet. >>> which brings us to our nex ory, mike. 've been telling you if the u.s. passes the tuesday night deadline without a deal to increase the debt ceiling, then the government is going to have to make some very tough choices as to what gets paid and what doesn't. that's causing anxiety from wall street to the battlefields of afghanistan. as the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, admiral mike mullen, discovered for himself today, nbc's jim miklaszewski is traveling with him. >> reporter: here at the hot spots of kandahar, american soldiers and marines are still dodging bullets, rockets and road side bombs every day. amazingly, when they had a cc1: chance to throw questions at the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, admiral mike mullen, their number one concern was the ongoing debate back home over the debt ceiling. >> the checkbook is not unlimited. >> reporter: admiral mullen told soldiers at kandahar that if the talks failed they'd still have to fight but they might not get paid. >> there are plenty of you that are living paycheck to paycheck: so if paychecks were to stop, it can have a devastating impact, and it can have a devastating impact pretty quickly. >> reporter: at camp leatherneck, mullen told marines given the state of the u.s. economy, all the services face a cutback in the size of the force, and maybe even military benefits. >> we're going to have to tighten our belts. we're going to have to prioritize, have to make some hard decisions. >> reporter: so here in the middle of the war zone like many americans these service members: are worried about their jobs anc are asking, what the heck is 1: going on back in washington? lester? >> our chief white house correspondent and political cc1: director chuck todd joins us now. chuck, we heard there that troops there are putting a face to this issue of what happens if the u.s. can't pay its bills. does this or anything like this have any effect on lawmakers in these final hours? >> reporter: boy,if it doesn't it should. i have to say that was pretty sobering to see. i read about this, knew what admiral mullen had said in response to this question. but when you see it, and you see those young faces and you know those are young families, you've got to think this does have an impact at end of the day. we already know about 15 republican senators who are not interested in keeping this standoff going any longer. >> as much drama as we're witnessing, in the back of i think a lot of our minds it's like, well, they'll figure it out. they always get right down to the wire and figure it out. let's assume that's the case. how do they get there 72 hours from now to tuesday? how do they get there? >> reporter: obviously there's a dispute right now happening between senator reid and senator mcconnell. that relationship and their talks are not going well. but we do know vice-president biden in particular has a good relationship with mitch mcconnell. they've been on the phone twice already i can tell you just late this afternoon. they're talking. they're close to figuring out this second part of this deal, : which is this idea of how do you guarantee a second round of cc1: deficit reductions? we know there's going to be over $1 trillion up front, then there's going to be a second round about six months from now. how do you guarantee it? that's where they're stuck. they're close. i don't think we're going to hear the deal tonight, though, lester. maybe tomorrow. >> chuck todd in our washington bureau. chuck, thanks. >>> much more on the debt debate tomorrow morning on "meet the press". white house senior advisor david plouffe will be among david gregory's guests. ? and with this crisis a reminder that brian williams anchors a prime time special report "taking the hill: inside congress" tomorrow night at 7:00, 6:00 central time. >>> we're getting our first look tonight at incredible pictures : of a caribbean airlines plane that split in half while landing in rough weather in guyana. that flight originated in new york.cc1: the question tonight, how did all 163 people on board manage to survive? nbc's jeff rossen has our report. cc1:cc1: >> reporter: as paramedics cc1:: arrived, the jet ripped in two off the runway, it looked like another airline tragedy. >> this is one of the worst aviation mishaps in recorded memory in guyana. >> reporter: but soon passengers would emerge, all of them alive. >> we have to jump off the plane. and my shoulder here is messed up. >> reporter: after departing new york, the caribbean airlines flight stopped in trinidad and flew onto guyana,there in heavy rain the boeing 737 touched down and skidded off the runway, stopping just 200 feet short of a ravine. thinking it was over, passengers say they clapped. that's when the cabin broke in : half. cc1: >> when the plane landed i told my friend, man, we gonna die. we gonna die. because the plane, it don't have enough runway to stop. >> it happened suddenly. everybody was hysterical, screaming. >> reporter: there were 163 people on board. dozens were injured. most of them have already been released from the hospital. >> it's amazing to leave an aircraft in that shape with a handful of very small injuries. >> reporter: while it's rare, planes have broken apart before with no deaths. two years ago, this american airlines 737 slammed into the runway in jamaica, finally coming to a halt and breaking apart. all 154 people aboard survived. >> the seats have been increased in strength so that they will now withstand 16 times the force of gravity before they depart the floor. >> reporter: this weekend, the ntsb is sending a team to the crash site in guyana, looking not only for what went wrong but what went right. jeff rossen, nbc news, new york. >>> meantime, back in this country, two delta airlines jets are being inspected for damage after colliding on the tarmac in chicago. both planes were backing away from the gates last night at o'hare when they clipped wings. no one was hurt. earlier this month, another pair of delta jets collided on the taxiway in boston. >>> the storm once known as tropical storm don fizzled along the texas coast dropping less than an inch of rain there overnight before moving south into mexico. the storm was seen as the best chance for some heavy rain in south texas in months, as the state suffers from a historic drought. it's so dry in texas, cattle and crop losses will start affecting food prices across the country. and as nbc's charles hadlock reports, some texas cities are resorting to desperate measures. >> reporter: at this sale barn in waco, the auctioneer can barely keep up with the cattle being sold at a loss. ranchers can no longer feed them, their pastures have turned to dust. and their ponds, which should be filled with fresh water, are bone dry. michael steinhauser runs a farm and ranch business in the worst drought in a generation. >> this will be one that people will talk about for years to come. >> reporter: it's one consumers will be paying for in grocery stores in the months ahead. there's plenty of beef on the market. the cattle being sold today are keeping prices down. but what about six months from now? >> let's say next year it rained and they wanted to replenish their herd. they want to get some more cows. where do you find those cows when so many of them have been sold already? >> reporter: the same is true for the price of corn, wheat and soybeans used in so many grocer: products. already up 4% from last year. like these sunflowers, they've all wilted in the texas drought. in west texas, where people can't remember the last time it rained, they still somehow have a sense of humor about it. but make no mistake. this is a serious drought. large lakes that supply drinking water to west texas cities are mere puddles. in this lake, less than 1% of the water is left. pump stations are high and dry. with lakes and water tanks running dangerously low, cities are desperate to find new sources of water. and one may have found it in an unlikely if not unpleasant source. sewage water. the city of big spring is so desperate for water, it's building a plant to recycle its sewage. >> the quality of water that we're going to be producing from the production facility is essentially water that you could deliver to somebody's tap. >> reporter: fresh or not, for : now it's the only water in sight as the dry texas wind brings no rain. charles hadlock, nbc news, big spring, texas. >>> in the horn of africa, refugees from somalia continue to flee the famine in that country today, pouring into unicef relief camps in ethiopia and kenya in search of food and shelter. president obama met this week with the presidents of four african nations calling for a greater international response. >>> when nbc nightly news continues this saturday, was today a turning point for the american college student convicted of murder in italy? >>> and later, another royal wedding day in britain. but for will and kate, this time the pressure was off. cc1:cc1: cc1:cc1: cc: >>> it is a pivotal weekend in the appeals trial of amanda knox, convicted in an italian cc court of killing her roommate.1: dna is at the center of this case, and court-appointed forensics experts say the evidence used against knox and her boyfriend was badly flawed and possibly contaminated by investigators. nbc's keith miller has our report tonight from perugia. >> reporter: knox appeared buoyant as she entered court today. her mother edda was there to offer support in the final stages of the appeal. the prosecution spent the day lashing out at the findings of an independent panel of forensic scientists who called the dna evidence used to convict knox unreliable. the judge read a letter from the head of italy's police forensic team, defending the professionalism of his officers. the findings of the independent forensic scientists is a major embarrassment to the italian crime scene investigators on this case. they are accused of more than 50 breaches of international forensic protocols. the most damaging finding by the independent experts is the absence of dna from the victim on the alleged murder weapon, a kitchen knife. the prosecution contended it was there. that new finding, according to a leading criminal attorney in rome, appears to seriously undermine the prosecution's cc1: case. >> if i were reviewing this from an american point of view, i would say most definitely it looks like a slam-dunk. >> reporter: not so, argued the prosecutor, who claimed today there could have been a mistake during the retesting of the dna material. the knox family remains optimistic, but upset judicial delays in the appeal mean knox will spend another summer behind bars. >> it's unfortunate now that there's going to be delays again and that they'll have to sit another summer in the heat in jail while everybody else goes : on vacation. >> reporter: the appeal trial will resume in september, after: the annual august vacation. the judge will then have three options. he can overturn the conviction, reduce the prison sentence, or even impose a harsher sentence if yet more new evidence sways the case. keith miller, nbc news, perugia. >> when we come back, son of sam, 35 years later. a look back at a serial killer': reign of terror. cc1: >>> police in norway revealed today that the man who confessed to killing 77 people told them he had more targets in mind, including the royal palace in oslo. authorities say anders breivik showed no emotion when they told him how many people he'd killed. >>> meantime, this weekend marks the 35th anniversary of the cc1: start of another infamous murder spree that took place in this country. it was the work of a serial killer known as the son of sam. for more than a year, his random string of killings and shootings virtually paralyzed the new yor: city area with fear. >> it was the mad man with the .44. a psychopath whose cryptic letters gave him a thrill and a name. the son of sam. between 1976 and 1977, he turned the streets of new york into his hunting ground. this week marks the 35th anniversary of his murder spree. the terror began in the early morning hours of july 29th, 1976. 18-year-old donna laurea who lived in this bronx apartment building with her family was sitting outside in a parked car right about here talking with a friend. she noticed a man standing nearby. without a word, that man pulled out a .44 caliber handgun from a brown paper bag and opened fire. donna was killed instantly. her friend survived. over the next 13 months, five more lives would be cut down. six others injured. the city was on edge, and the headlines screamed with stories of the unknown gunman. cc1: >> the son of sam case. he never robbed or raped, he simply killed at random, in cold blood. >> the manhunt eventually led to a 24-year-old postal worker named david berkowitz. with the help of a palm print, a parking ticket and a ballistics match, he was arrested outside his home and the nightmare was over. >> i walked into that room with full intentions of whacking this guy. at least punching him out. >> retired homicide detective jocoffee led the search for the soof sam. and it was coffee who was one of the first to interrogate him. >> he didn't blink for three hours. and he had a constant smile on his face sitting there. >> coffee says the motive was borne out of the death of berkowitz's adoptive mother and his hatred of women. sentenced to life in prison, berkowitz says he has undergone a religious transformation, becoming born again. and in a recent interview, he expressed remorse for the murders. >> i'd like to be remembered as a person who's sorry for what happened and is doing everything in his power to try to make amends to society in any way possible. >> 35 years later, a serial killer asking for forgiveness for an act of evil that many will never forget. in preparing this report, we contacted david berkowitz serving his sentence in a priso: north of new york city. he responded with a letter expressing remorse saying, "i

the president and republicans have been in the same conversation. then you've got the top four leaders in congress who've been piecing together what's sort of the framework of what we think the ultimate compromise might be. here's the hard part. all of the members who actually get to vote have not been read in on the details. and there are some things they may not be so happy about. we've seen how predictable those votes can be. tonight, within minutes of this crush that surrounded the senate's top democrat, harry reid signed off on a deal that came from the white house and republicans. >> both the president and vice president called me and the president talked to the speaker as well. >> reporter: signs of real cooperation, not just talk. reid told waiting senators they better stay close. >> i would not suggest a ball game now. >> reporter: republicans went back to the table working directly with the president and vice president. >> i think we're close. >> reporter: david plouffe on "meet the press" was optimistic, too. >> i think it's clear we'll have debt reduction in two stages. >> reporter: the deal is shaping up like this. raise the debt ceiling by up to $2.8 trillion in two installm t installmen installments. stage one one cut $1 trillion in spending. launch a new super committee evenly split between parties to find up to $1.8 trillion in extra savings by november. stage two, if congress fails to actually make those recommended cuts, by the end of that election year, that kicks in automatic spending cuts including medicare and defense. after the maddening display of inaction that lit up the phones on capitol hill all week -- >> senator's office. >> reporter: -- and fired up the public. >> the 11th hour now. time to get this done for the american people. >> reporter: tourists outside the capitol today want this over. >> i'm concerned because i feel like they're not dealing with the average person. >> it's not red and blue. this is a time for everyone to come together. >> reporter: both sides acknowledge a deal must include ways to compel congress to make super debt reductions. >> there should be a sword of equal shapeness and strength hanging over his party's head. obviously the sword hanging over the head of democrats are the cuts. we don't like them. >> reporter: republicans don't like the threat of deeper defense cuts. democratic leaders get the job of finding enough house and senate democrats to support a white house deal with republicans. and one of the things that just bubbled up is we're hearing from all over the capitol new concerns about the defense cuts in the first year. that hadn't been the hot button issue until today. that's the kind of detail that could throw this over the rails or make it something they can sort out. but there has been a general sense of things being really much more hopeful today. we still can't say there's a deal. brian? >> kelly, let's hope somebody listens to those folks you interviewed outside who seemed to be making a lot of sense. kelly o'donnell starting us off on the hill. we want to go cross town in washington, the other end of pennsylvania avenue. our chief white house correspondent chuck todd. >> reporter: everybody is waiting for john boehner to sign off on this deal. it goes right to what kelly's reporting. it's this issue of how deep would the defense cuts be, not just in the deal itself in the first part, but also in the size of it, in the so-called trigger. you heard truchuck schumer talk about having the sharp-edged sword hanging over the head. because you're not going to have taxes hanging over to compel this super committee to work, the other solution was the threat of pretty deep defense cuts. well, now house republicans are balking and there's a lot of hang wri hand wringing over this. this has been an odd soap opera today. the first part of the day everyone thought it was democrat k holding off on the deal. republicans were saying they're there, they're there, they're there. then democrats signed on. all of the sudden they're balking. if issue goes back to the same issue we've been dealing with for weeks. how does this get through the house? nobody has a path yet. >> yet another groundhog day in washington, d.c. for that matter, the rest of the country. chuck todd at the white house, we'll talk to you later. >>> what about the damage just this process has done? whether we have a deal or no deal, the whole world has been watching this. the ratings agencies, the markets, and the numbers do tell part of this story. we are coming off the worst week in a year for the dow with stocks down 4.2%. the question is will a deal fix that and restore faith? our friend carl quintanilla has come over from cnbc headquarters. what happens? what do you think they're going to be looking for? >> clearly the market would love any kind of compromise. if you get that look for a very sharp rally. asian markets will start trading tonight. that'll give us an early indication as to how we might trade. any rally might be short lived. the data has not been good. the economy has very little cushion. once the spending cuts are laid out, the market is going to say what are the effects going to be on jobs? fewer firefighters. less local and state spending. a jobs market this friday that will not be good probably. the market might be bracing for more of those. >> starting tonight and tomorrow morning, you and your pals at cnbc will be watching all those. as always, thank you. >>> let's take a further step back now and look at how all of this looks. andrea mitchell as covered a lot of politics in washington over the years. she's standing by in our d.c. newsroom tonight. andrea, you've seen them come and seen them go. this has hardly been a profile in courage. have you ever seen anything like this? >> i actually never have. we've had crises before, political crises. we've had in our lifetime 9/11, katrina, other national emergencies, tragedies. in one case or another, in all of those cases, one branch of government at least, if one failed the other would step in. in this case all branches of government, our entire government seems to be dysfunctional. it's even questioning in people's minds the checks and balances that was the genius of the framers. now it's stalemate. it's gridlock. i've never seen anything where there have been so little leadership and where people are angry, disgusted and i think really rebellious out there. people are wanting change and they don't know how to get it. >> and a new dynamic, andrea, in washington at least in the time you and i have been watching things, some members have come to town and they don't care if they get re-elected. that is a whole new dynamic. they are here for a single issue and are willing to go down in flames at the polls if they achieve it or don't. >> there has always been anger among leaders and among the followers, the rank and file, the caucus. these new members really are willing to tear the place down. and they not only don't care whether they're not re-elected, they don't want pork. there are no inducements to get them to follow the speaker or other leaders. they don't want the traditional methods of buying loyalty here. and that was a reform that now has changed the dynamic. >> all right. andrea mitchell from our washington newsroom, wish there was better news to report to folks. especially about our era in government. andrea, thanks. we'll have more on this later. of course, tonight is the night we are airing our special hour. "a day in the life of the u.s. capitol." this past week for one day, we at nbc news descended on the building. we received extraordinary access to what was going on inside. and, believe me, that means the good, the bad and the ugly. and it all airs tonight here on nbc. and we have more this evening on an extraordinary exchange we shared with you here last night between front line troops in afghanistan and the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, admiral mike mullen who's visiting them this weekend. somewhat unbelievably, several u.s. troops said their major concern was not getting paid because of this budget fight in washington. in response, mullen was blunt. he said it would be devastating. well, today our pentagon correspondent jim miklaszewski followed up in an exclusive conversation with admiral mullen. >> reporter: brian, admiral mullen fully expected to talk to the soldiers and marines about the war here in afghanistan. not the one in washington. >> they weren't talking about afghanistan. they weren't talking about the fight they were in. this isn't surprising, but when you're deployed you want to make sure everything's okay at home. >> soldiers and marines in the middle of a war zone worrying about getting paid. >> they always worry about getting paid. they just sort of expect it to happen. >> reporter: you said that if, in fact, paychecks were held up, that many in the services would be devastated by missing a single paycheck. what do you mean by that? >> over half of us are married now. we're living paycheck to paycheck. so each paycheck means a lot. they count on it. so somehow i would certainly hope we could work our way through this so that these young men and women who are sacrificing so much, that you've seen this week in afghanistan, don't have to worry about this. >> reporter: but admiral mullen is worried and says if the debt talks fail, he has no idea how or if the military will be paid. brian? >> jim miklaszewski, traveling with the chairman of joint chiefs, the u.s. exclusive interview there tonight. >>> there is bad news out of syria this evening. government forces opened fire in the city of hama. a stronghold of the opposition. and they killed at least 75 people. president obama upon learning the news fired off a statement from the white house condemning the violence against the syrian people. we get the latest tonight from nbc's mike taibbi. >> reporter: dawn broke with thick smoke from tank fire surrounding the city of hama, about 130 miles north of demascus. in this amateur video described as coming from the scene, they said the government set fire to vehicles. the narrater described a coordinated attack using tanks and ground crews that unconfirmed reports said left scores dead and hundreds wounded. many of the casualties reportedly shot at point-blank range. one blogger wrote that government troops even surrounded the city's main hospital to prevent treatment of the wounded. government forces also confronted protesters in other syrian cities. children among the victims. the death toll nationwide as more than 1,600 now in these months of largely peaceful protests. but hama has been a plash point city in control of activists who promise daily demonstrations until assad relinquishes power. with a growing number of government troops reportedly defecting to the protesters' side, one protest leader called today's attack an act of desperation by a regime in its last days. mike taibbi, nbc news, tunisia. >>> the families of two american hikers detained in iran were hoping a hearing today would have led to their freedom. but no such thing. iranian authorities who have accused the pair of being spies are not ready to announce a verdict. they say now it could be many more days away. >>> investigators from the ntsb are in guyana tonight trying to find out why yesterday's caribbean airlines flight from new york spllid off the runway d broke apart. a very important aspect of this story, all 162 people on board that 737 survived. >>> still to come this sunday night, tonight nbc's kate snow has just arrived in a place of desperation. the situation that the whole world is watching.

plays this game to make the all-star team. before in my career, i mean, that's never, ever, ever been an opportunity for even a thought. so even when you guys were asking me about it before, it was pretty gratifying, but to have it happen, you know, it 's dreamlike, just like everything that's happening to me this season so far. >> whether i pitch or not, it's still a great honor to represent the giants in a game that does actually have meaning. very advantageous for us to have home field advantage come playoff time. >> if you're wondering why they didn't seem so happy, because those interviews took place after this ball game against the tigers. ross finds himself a hole. sand value makes it 3-1 giants. back come the tigers in the seventh. a key error by tejada kept the inning alive. 4-3, detroit, then some insurance courtesy of brandon inge in the eighth. the tigers avoid the three-game sweep at the handz of the giants 6-3 is your score. >>> diamondbacks/a's, gio gonzalgon gonzalez named to his first all-star game, looking every bit the part. bottom six, 2-1 a's. connor jackson, did he get enough? yeah, he did off kennedy. a two-run shot, first oakland homer of the series. but not the last. same inning, sizemore going up top, kennedy felt like an all-star snub. then he went out and gave up seven runs. top seven, gonzalez getting it done, johnson waving. 7-2 a's winners. >>> men's singles final at wimbledon, the defending champ na daud, djokovic. that will play. we go on to break and take the set 6 huh-4, championship return, jokedjokovic his first d slam

>>> when we come back, can thee fbi track your every move . qrn controversia >>> the supreme court agreed this week to take up a controversial issue involving privacy in the digital age, a challenge to the police practice of secretly installing tracking devices in the cars of unsuspecting drivers. nbc's pete williams has more tonight. >> reporter: this california college student remembers exactly where it was found, hidden under his car. >> right over here. >> reporter: at first yauser didn't know what it was, two parts, maybe an antenna, stuck it to his car with magnets, found by a mechanic when he took his car in for an oil change. when a friend blogged about the discovery, it became an internet sensation. two days later, afifi says he was stopped by an fbi agent. >> then he goes, did you find anything under your car? and i asked him, did you put anything under there? he answered, yeah. >> reporter: so he gave it back, but now he's suing the government. his lawyer calls it a frightening invasion of privacy and says the fbi should have to get a search warrant first, which it didn't do. >> that's really important because it ensures there are no civil rights abuses and they're not just searching individuals with very little suspicion or none at all. >> reporter: the fbi won't say why it was tracking afifi, but current informer agents say using a tracking device does not amount to a search because a car is driven on a public street where there's no expectation of privacy and where it can easily be followed. >> i believe this gps tracker device is no more intrusive than a physical surveillance on foot or in a vehicle. >> reporter: most federal courts agree with the fbi, but some judges say when the devices are used to track someone for a long time, around the clock, they reveal so much detail it amounts to an invasion of privacy and illegal search. pete williams, nbc news, washington. >> now, it wasn't just the scent of roses but the sound of fidlersfidler s filling the air at the rose garden today. the santa clara valley fiddlers association jammed for free at the san jose rose garden today while the concert was free, the nonprofit association did

"nightly news" begins now. captions paid for by nbc-universal television >>> a special good evening to our viewers in the west. well, we'll save you some of the drama and begin with the bottom line. there may be a vote in the house of representatives tonight as part of the effort to fix the debt ceiling. but it probably won't fix anything. if anything, it may prove that the speaker of the house has the votes to deliver his own party. but insiders are telling nbc news it may still be days yet until this titanic struggle is over, until some sort of solution is reached in what has become an ugly partisan fight to stop what most fear would be an economic disaster. and none of what's happening in d.c. tonight is doing anything to lessen the anger across the country. to help us lay out what is happening in washington at this hour, we want to begin once again with kelly o'donnell on capitol hill. >> reporter: the hour is late, and it's been a power struggle inside the office of speaker boehner. he needed a handful of votes to make the statement for republicans in the end game of this debate. he just doesn't have it. to give you an idea, there are dozens of pizza boxes arriving here. and at the same time, house members, a group of them had gone to the chapel to pray. that gives you an idea how long a night this is. >> do you have the votes? >> reporter: the house speaker's job is not chief vote counter. but today john boehner led both a public and private get out the vote operation. >> let's end this crisis. >> reporter: boehner met one-on-one with undecided republicans. while nancy pelosi campaigned to keep democrats from making the difference. >> i feel very confident that if they're going to have 217 votes, whatever it is, they're going to have to be republican votes. >> reporter: one of those republicans turned out to be veteran indiana conservative mike pence. >> i announced this morning that i would support the boehner plan. and i believe it's an opportunity -- i think we have an opportunity today to make progress on fiscal discipline. >> reporter: boehner's plan would cut spending $917 billion over ten years and raise the country's debt ceiling in two installments. that would mean another debt limit vote within months. outside the capitol, some republican freshmen from the tea party class switched from uneasy to on board. >> is this as big as we wanted to go? heck no. we wanted to go bigger. we ran on going bigger. but this is the only proposal on the table that accomplishes the goals we set out to do. >> reporter: arm twisting failed to persuade some conservatives. >> i know that there are people in my party that want to keep beating up on me, because i can't vote for a bill that only cuts $1 trillion. >> reporter: ready to blunt any perceived boehner momentum, senate democrats came out hours early to declare that option dead. >> it will be defeated. they know that, the american people now should understand that clearly. >> reporter: and we've seen member after member coming out of the speaker's office, most of them still saying they're nos. one saying he's a beaten down, bloody no, but not willing to change his mind. they're in a holding pattern until the house does something, before they can take some sort of action on this too. everyone's on pins and needles, frustrated, tired, unsure of the end game, but really surprised it is this painful for this late tonight. >> all right. stay where you are, kelly o'donnell. let's go across town to chuck todd. what's the view like at that end of pennsylvania avenue, chuck? >> reporter: everything's on hold. there were report that is they would start reporting out to the country, how it might work. all of their plans are on hold. they're watching with baded breath to see if boehner can get this through. this thing is going to die in the senate. why do they care? if boehner does get it through, it means the republicans have the leverage to sort of get most of what they want in the last-ditch compromise deal. if boehner fails, then all of a sudden harry reid and mitch mcconnell put a deal together very quickly that's more weighted toward what the democrats want. they don't want a second vote on the debt ceiling in six months. that's the sticking point the whole time we've been here this week. >> back to kelly, briefly. democrats rung the white house and the senate. what are they going to get out of this when it's all over? >> reporter: for democrats, what they want to do is limit the damage to the programs they hold dear. when the cuts do happen, over time, that would be part of this package, they want to limit the chances that it's medicare, the social programs that would take the biggest brunt. they're just trying to hold the line on some of the things they consider important. up until now, it seemed republicans, especially tea party republicans had had such a disproportionate impact on this whole debate. >> all right. your government at work. some see it as why washington is badly, badly broken. kelly o'donnell, chuck todd. we'll keep watching, and thanks to you both. >>> of course, we are just back from washington where we spent yesterday on capitol hill, all over capitol hill in fact. nbc news cameras were given special access for a special broadcast this sunday night. we talked to nearly every member of the leadership, including the gop leader in the senate, senator mitch mcconnell of kentucky. and i asked him about a hot topic, no tax increase in any of these plans being discussed. >> why shouldn't rich folks pay more? >> they do. they pay an extraordinary amount more. and, in fact, about half of americans don't pay any income taxes at all. that isn't a sticking point. the president, in signing a continuation of the current tax rates back in december, made the argument that republicans have made, which is that raising taxes in the middle of a recession is not a good idea. i don't know that anybody thinks the economy's in better shape now than it was six months ago. but all of those issues are being discussed in conjunction with how we put together a package here that will actually begin to get us to head in a different direction. >> mitch mcconnell on what has become a big charge from the left that in any of these debt ceiling deals, the poor are likely to get hit while the rich are likely to get a pass. we will have more from him, from all the players in this, in our prime time special, "taking the hill inside congress" that's sunday night, 7:00, 6:00 central. >>> now, to a developing story about a u.s. army soldier under arrest tonight accused of plotting to attack fellow service members outside ft. hood in texas. the same army post that, of course, was the scene of that awful attack back in 2009. this time disaster was averted, the fbi says, because a man saw something and said something. we get details tonight from our justice correspondent pete williams in washington. pete, good evening. >> reporter: brian, law enforcement officials say an army private, who wanted out of the service because he's a muslim, plotted this attack, saying he wanted to get even with the military for the fighting in iraq and afghanistan. investigators say his targets were fellow soldiers at the army's sprawling ft. hood. texas police revealed today they arrested naser jason abdo yesterday at a motel near ft. hood. in his room, atf agents found enough explosives to make at least two timebombs. the police chief called abdo very dangerous. >> i can tell you that we would probably be here today giving you a different briefing had he not been stopped. >> reporter: in fact, federal officials say abdo planned to set off bombs today, just outside the army post. it was a tip from the owner of this gun store that led to his arrest. they believe abdo was acting suspiciously, asking too many questions. it's the same store where investigators say army major hassan bought the gun used in the 2009 shootings at ft. hood. last year while stationed in kentucky, abdo asked to be classified a conscientious objective. >> if you feel being in the military, goes against your conscience, use this army regulation, because that's what it's here for. >> reporter: that was put on hold after the army found child pornography in his possession. he then went awol and turned up earlier this week. no comment from any lawyer for abdo, brian. >>> we turn to libya, where we learn that the rebel's military commander was killed today, just hours after being arrested by the rebel counsel. they suspected him of being a double agent with ties to the gadhafi regime. it's not clear tonight who is responsible for the killing, but rebel security forces say they have a suspect under arrest. meanwhile, of course, the fight goes on, every day, every hour. and our own mike taibbi is with rebel forces in the mountains outside tripoli, in the town of nalut. a place they've controlled almost from the start of the conflict five months back. and as mike reports tonight, the rebels have launched a new assault on gadhafi forces just today. >> reporter: we saw rocket after rocket fired by rebel fighters from mountain top positions to the valley below. the plan was to once and for all clear gadhafi forces from two valley towns where they were stubbornly dug in. from those towns gadhafi's troops had been bombing towns like nalut, and they threaten to try to retake the nearby border crossing with tunisia. if the rebels were to lose that crossing, a run to tripoli would be an impossibility. in the early morning haze, the rebels pounded their targets for hours. at this range it's an artillery war. these are soviet made rockets seized from gadhafi forces now aimed right back at those same forces. the rebels cheered each on target hit. though some were reluctant to show their faces with gadhafi forces hardly vanquished. >> do you know if they've retreated yet, gadhafi forces, or are they still there? >> i think they're still there, hiding in house and farms. >> reporter: the heavy artillery barrage did the job. dozens of these rockets and additional shelling by these seized gadhafi army tanks. the rebels have better weapons, including gadhafi's own, and better command and control. and by midday, they heard their ground forces had taken the first town and soon the second. they had suffered losses, these medics handled one casualty. >> how did the man die, was he shot, was it a mine? what happened? and nalut's hospital treated the wounded from both sides. >> translator: i was surprised gadhafi's men put up so little resistance, this rebel fighter told us. but this wasn't the taking of tripoli, only an essential operation to protect key ground won months ago. a victory, but not the victory. mike taibbi, nbc news, nalut, libya. >>> in this country we have a tropical storm coming to the texas coast, churning across the gulf of mexico tonight. it's not a big storm, and it lost some of its steam today. but it's headed for landfall late tomorrow night along the south texas coast. forecasters say the storm named don will come ashore as a tropical storm not a hurricane. whatever rain it brings may actually be welcomed in drought-parched parts of texas. >>> there's a big change coming to tylenol. as you may know, too much of it can damage the liver. and it's often easy to get too much of it if you take multiple medicines that contain the main ingredient acetaminophen. so to reduce the risk of accidental overdoses, johnson & johnson is lowering the maximum dose of extra strength tylenol from eight a day down to six. you will see new directions on the bottle starting in the fall. beginning next year, the maximum daily dose of regular strength tylenol will also be lowered. so this is a big change for something a lot of people take across this country. >>> when we come back here tonight, there is food there that's intended to feed starving people in a terrible crisis. what's behind the holdup that could cost lives? >>> and later, life on earth, all that can happen in one single day around this planet. we take it a day at a time. that's how it is with alzheimer's disease. she needs help from me. and her medication. the exelon patch -- it releases medication continuously for twenty-four hours. she uses one exelon patch daily for the treatment of mild to moderate alzheimer's symptoms.
